break your glass slippers by Amanda Lovelace

Disclosure: I received a digital copy of this book for reviewAfter not loving the mermaid’s voice returns in this one, I was a little cautious to pick up break your glass slippers by Amanda Lovelace, but it turns out this collection of poetry was a lovely little book I greatly enjoyed. While nothing is going to outdo Anne Sexton’s fairy tales, this collection does an excellent job turning Cinderella into a series of a poems about falling in love with yourself. I also really liked the little illustrations throughout–I got a digital copy for review but I bet the print edition is quite lovely. The messages from the fairy godmother were all good reminders, and I felt the connecting theme of the book really helped strengthen the collection. I also think it’s a good balance between dark and uplifting moments. It’s definitely a brief read, but there are some lovely poems in there. Overall, I’d say that break your glass slippers is probably my favourite collection by Lovelace so far and has given me motivation to continue to pick up her works in the future.
